Types of Car Accident Injuries

Do not think that small, minor collisions somehow result in less severe injuries. Even low-speed collisions can result in seemingly minor injuries that, if left untreated, can cause long-term effects.

In some cases, low-impact car crashes can even result in a lifetime of medical problems and physical pain. The resulting injuries of a car accident can range from minor contusions to paralysis, but one thing remains the same: You need to seek immediate medical attention and legal assistance.

Skin & Soft Tissue Damage

Some of the most difficult injuries to properly and adequately document include soft tissue injuries. Sprains, strains, nerve damage, fractures, bruises, and muscular tears can be just as debilitating other injuries generally considered more severe. It is important to realize that soft tissue injuries are most commonly suffered but could present unique challenges when a person is seeking full compensation.

Common injuries include:

  • Facial injuries
  • Air bag injuries
  • Injuries to arms, legs and other extremities
  • Impact injuries to the chest due to contact with the dashboard or seat belts
  • Persisting headaches or migraines

Other Types of Injuries

Some of the most devastating injuries sustained in car accidents can occur under the skin. In some instances, a victim may not even realize symptoms or side effects of a serious accident-related injury. If left untreated, some of these injuries could cause lifelong medical problems.

Examples of catastrophic injuries can include:

  • Head and brain injuries
  • Spinal cord, neck, and back injuries
  • Mental and emotional anguish
